Holocaust Remembrance Day
When asked what the most important thing he learned was, he replied that he was shocked to find that those perpetrating the violence were “normal” people.
They were not monsters or demons but “normal” people acting out in monstrous and demonic ways.
The potential for such, he believed, was in all of us.
So it was for most who perpetrated the Holocaust and (if history is our guide) will be again somewhere, some horrible day.
It is too easy for us to believe that we are doing good while doing great evil, especially when fear grips us.
Let us all remember that as we remember what that terrible potential has already produced.
